Congress rushing to get Continuing Resolution done so they can beat it out of town
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2016
So, time is of the essence to call your member of Congress and tell him/her to follow the appeal laid out in the Babin/Brat letter.
Tell your member to call the leadership and urge them to cut the funds for refugees from terror producing parts of the world.
The key leadership in the House who should be hearing from their fellow Republicans (and from you) are:
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan
Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy
Rep. Hal Rogers (Chairman of the Appropriations Committee)
Again, your member should call those three and tell them to cut the funding for refugees coming from terror-producing regions of the world (I would tell them to halt the whole program to be reviewed when a new Administration arrives in Washington).
The timing could not be better in light of the Somali terror attack in St. Cloud yesterday and it is looking like an Afghan, legally admitted to the US, might have been responsible for the attack in New York and the failed attack in NJ over the weekend.
We promised to give you the full list of those who bravely signed on to the Babin/Brat letter, they should be commended and urged to hang tough. (All Republicans in Congress were presumably given an opportunity to sign this letter last week and unless listed below, they obviously failed to do so.)
(Prime targets for your appeal should be to the House Freedom Caucus. Everyone of them should have signed the Babin/Brat letter. Those who did sign are listed below.) ***Update*** I’ve compared the lists for you, go here to see House Freedom Caucus members who haven’t supported Babin/Brat.
